Wont work. the valve and power tube are too small. once you cram one that will work in that space you might as well just have designed and built a new one. which i already did.

Natural thumbing motion to cock should tilt the barrel up enough to feed.

It could be a modern twist on the fun of the splatmaster.
What closes the bolt?

Still needs to have some way to seal the breach

And do away with the cylinder, fake or real. Why make it complicated or add extra weight when paintballs can role right into the breach on their own? Also will be nice and holsterable.

Basically regular stock class pistol with single handed thumb cocking and 12g in the grip like the dsp.
Check page one of the original drv thread. its basically what i started out doing lol. but nooooooo. it had to have goofy cylinders.

Still wont work. there are a buttload of threads on this. its like trying to get a goblin to fire at field velocity. futile.

I don't need another paintball gun designed around the physical attributes of a real gun that moves real bullets. I want a thumb cocked pistol designed for .68 paintballs that takes barrels and is easy to reload.
Why even bother with thumb cocking. cram tpx guts in it and do away with the whole works.
